Our bread and butter” is how Matt Day describes this wild-fermented Sauvignon Blanc, produced in decent quantities of 125,000 bottles from different sites on the farm. Passion fruit and gooseberry flavours combine engagingly on the palate with a dry, savoury finish. 2021-24

Winemaker Notes

A great deal of attention has been placed on expressing the Klein Constantia style in this wine. It consists of a blend of various parcels from the estate, each kept separate throughout the winemaking process. Finally, they are carefully blended together to create a perfect representation of the unique Klein Constantia terroir.

Harvested at 4am in the morning in order to preserve the freshness. A selection of 36 different blocks were used, each harvested and vinified separately in order to create the perfect blend. Only free run juice extracted and used from a combination of both whole bunch and destemmed grapes. 25% percent of the fruit underwent skin contact for 12 hours, 80% wild fermentation, 100% organic nutrients and wine is now 100% vegan friendly.

Light and bright in appearance. Fresh flavours of grapefruit, green fig and an oyster shell salinity fill the nose. Full bodied and concentrated, the palate is textured with a light acidity and bold minerality. An elevated expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The wine concludes with crisp and long spicy finish.
